When to Invest in a Career Coach

If you perhaps don’t quite know how to conduct a full job search or have no clue how to use a computer then you should definitely invest in hiring a Career Coach. The great thing about having a career coach is being able to have an objective view of yourself. One of the first things a great coach will do is a complete a thorough assessment of who you are; your professional and personal image. They will immediately know what your brand image is and how it fits into a corporate culture. Working with a coach can help you identify what is your life purpose and what career field most closely aligns with it. When people work with purpose they tend to become happier and more satisfied with their life goals and achievements. Once your career coach can begin to identify the specific types of jobs that are most suited for your talents, gifts, personality and purpose it becomes much easier to target your search to specific companies, organizations and institutions doing the type of work that you will enjoy.

If you are not outgoing and personable, but tend to be shy, reserved and don’t communicate well. Hire a Coach.

A great coach will be able to assess your strengths and weakness. Once you have identified what those are, it becomes easier to overcome your fears that may be holding you back from success. Coaches can walk and talk you through some of your issues that you may be struggling with and offer tips and suggestions on how to combat them. They can help you to write a knockout resume, articulating all of your key positive strengths. They will inspire and motivate you to go after jobs that you might not feel confident enough in applying for. Good coaches are not afraid to step out of their comfort zone and motivate you to do the same.

If you are a recent High School or College Graduate or full time student. Hire a Career Coach.

A recent High School or College graduate entering the workforce can oftentimes be unprepared and uncertain of how to navigate the market and negotiate a good salary. Students might need to learn how to construct a great resume, how to conduct a good interview, workplace protocol, benefits, and more. Entry level workers oftentimes settle for low paying positions simply to get a paycheck so they end up being stuck for years with no real long term solutions. Coaches can help you to construct a long term career plan and build out your future career goals.
